Overall rating

4.4 / 5

Overall a very pleasant experience. Nice boat, good food and nice crew. We stopped at 3 pre-announced stops, mostly on the west coast of Naxos. Food was simple & functional but tasty (moussaka for lunch, fruit at the end). We had enough time at all stops, you could snorkel (equipment was provided). The only drawback is that the Rina cave was not targeted and there was no sailing either, but that is not always under control either. Stand-Up Paddling was in the description, but I didn't see it on board, but I didn't ask about it either.

Crew was great and prepared us delicious food throughout. They knew the sea and wind well and took us to some cool locations. I highly recommend this to see parts of the island you wouldn’t normally be able to.

They were right on time and everything worked out perfectly.
